“Who Is Evangelical? Defining American Evangelicalism and What’s at Stake.” Lecture. The Department of Classics and Religion. University of Calgary. October 23, 2020. https://events.ucalgary.ca/faith-spirituality/

Scholars, pundits, and evangelicals themselves can’t seem to agree on who counts as an evangelical. Are evangelicals conservative white American Christians who vote Republican? Or are evangelicals a diverse collection of Christians, the world over? Is evangelicalism a theological category, defined by belief? Or is it a cultural, political, or racial category? This paper will sift through the competing definitions, and rather than selecting one over another, will suggest that we instead think of evangelicalism as an imagined religious community.
